Charity Finance Group, Institute of Fundraising and NCVO are conducting a survey of charities on the Gift Aid Small Donations Scheme in response to the government’s call for evidence. The government introduced the scheme in April 2013 with the aim of helping small charities to fundraise and to support low level fundraising initiatives such as bucket collections.
Charities that take part in the survey and complete it before the 31st January will be entered into a prize draw to win a place at CFG’s Gift Aid Conference on Tuesday 9th February 2016 in Central London. Otherwise, the survey closes on the 12th February and can be completed here:
“The scheme has not met its original targets due to low take up by charities with tens of millions of pounds worth of funding not being claimed,” said Andrew O’Brien, Head of Policy, Charity Finance Group. “We want to find out why and would encourage any charity, regardless of whether they use the scheme, to take our survey.
AIM is keen to feedback from our members about the scheme. We would like to know if you use the scheme in your museum, gallery or heritage site – or the reasons why you don’t. Suggestions for improvements to the scheme or examples of how you have used it would be welcomed. Please email your thoughts to: firstname.lastname@example.org
